Turn the water off between lathering and rinsing.
Can drink beer at room temperature... And still enjoy it
If you can move through out the boat in rough seas and not bump into your partner
Instinctively look at the amp meter every time you throw a switch
Squeegee and chamois after every shower in winter

Chamois is nice and soft but doesn't the squeegee leave a rash?

I will have to try that. I could find any shape I wanted then & add plexiglas to it. May be fun. I think the one I saw was dark color for better viewing. I looked online but couldn't find it but then again I'm not sure what it's called... Fish viewing dry head thingy didn't seem to get it. LOL

You might be a liveaboard if you know your neighbors by first name and boat name. Oh, that's Eric and Jaime off Coconutz...

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard - if . . .

I had a plexiglass bottom panel added to an old dink of mine but found it only useful when still. Specifically, bubbles created by rowing would obscure the view. When fishing though I could watch the little buggers suck my baited hook into their mouths and spit it out the clean.

J. Fish don't fear me.

Leave before the dockmaster starts work and get home after he leaves.

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard - if . . .

If moving doesn't involve packing and when you go on holiday you take your home with you. I recently saw someone who had been kicked out of his apartment, all of a sudden he had to store all his stuff somewhere, something that was a lot harder than finding a place to stay... seeing that mound of stuff (which ended up at one end of the wood shop I have use of) reminded me of why I am so lucky to live on a boat. When ever I come across a yardsale I have to repeat out loud "I live on a boat I can't get stuff".

Yeah, but I gotta move sea lions off the dock at night or their barking keeps you up worse than dogs-& the smell can knock you out!!

First time I saw/heard of this is in South America. I was traveling around Colombia and told to put the paper in the can because the pipes were smaller sizes compared to US plumbing. Confused me when I saw the cans filled with used toilet paper.

The joys of international travels.
